The Auschwitz Garden
Cover in category: 'Non-Fiction' > 'Biography & Autobiography'
The cover design contains a photograph I took of oppi standing in front of part of his backyard garden. Around him you can see things that, only to him, are precious. Everything has a purpose, a reason for existing. Oppi is looking frail now but his stance, flexibility, and active lifestyle conceal his 95 years of age.
This book was actually the reason I chose to become an author. The thought of oppi slipping away from this world and taking his repertoire of life experiences forever with him was too much to bare. Oppi’s experiences simply had to be captured permanently in print!
This book contains stories of the horrors that oppi was subjected to as a concentration camp prisoner but equally tells of his achievements in the 70 years following WWII.
